Do you need to convert MS Office files into PDF format? Do you need a virtual printer to print/convert/preview documents? Do you need to create PDF files that combine image quality with space efficiency and superb data retention – even at high levels of compression?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes then this is the product for you. Tracker Software’s best-selling virtual printer, PDF-XChange Standard, is the ultimate application for the creation and virtual printing of industry-standard PDF files. It’s compatible with files from almost all Windows applications, such as Word, Excel and AutoCAD, and features an optimized engine for superb conversion of images and image-based text characters. The files it creates are surprisingly small, given their quality – allowing for faster uploads/downloads, a reduction in storage space and increased data retention.
PDF-XChange Standard also features MS Office integration, which provides extra functionality such as adding clickable tables of contents and embedded URL support that facilitates the creation of external links. Batch conversion is also supported, making it possible to convert multiple MS-Office-compatible files simultaneously into PDF format.
Virtual printers generate fully-compatible, industry-standard, native PDF files (as opposed to paper versions of documents). When suitable source material is used these documents feature searchable text, which greatly increases the efficiency of searching, selecting and editing files. PDF-XChange Standard features a wide range of functionality and customizable options to enhance, update and secure PDF files - please see below for an extensive list.

I am new to this program, but I am very impressed with it. I recieve a lot of pdf files which I need to change before I send them on. With this program I add drawings, text and notes. I also use it to blank out detail that I want to hide from the next user. It would be even better if I can change the scale for the measurements. Then I would be able to use this programs to calculate accurate areas.
